Violin bow

Rounded stick with evidence of a possible graft towards the back. Open, hourglass ivory frog with anvil heel with later ivory button. Rounded axe style head with ivory face. It is possible the frog and stick were not originally intended as a pair: this frog style was normally used with Cramer style heads (see item 10.17)
